Orderic Vitalis names “Bernardum patrem Gualterii de Sancto-Gualerico et Ricardum de Huglevilla” as the son of “Gulbertus cognomento advocatus de Sancto Gualerico” and his wife “filiam Ricardi ducis”. Domesday Book records that “Walter de Saint-Valery” held Isleworth and Hampton in Middlesex; Creeting in Suffolk. William of Tyre names "Walterius de Sancto Valerius Bernardusque filius eius" among those present at the capture of Nikaia in 1097. Murray suggests that Gauthier de Saint-Valéry and his son Bernard were the same persons who are named by Albert of Aix as "…Walterus de Domedart et eius filius Bernardus…" among those who took part in the siege of Nikaia, suggesting that "Domedart" indicates a toponym derived from the saint´s name "domnus Medardus" and that it could indicate Domart-en-Ponthieu. Albert of Aix records "…Reinardus de Hamersbach, Walterus de Domedart" as those who guarded Adhémar Bishop of Le Puy into the mountains towards the port of Simeon after finding the holy lance, dated to mid-1098 from the context.
Gauthier married Hodierne (Ermesende) DE MONTLHÉRY, daughter of Guy I DE MONTLHÉRY châtelain de Rochefort-en-Yvelines and Hodierne DE GOMETZ LA FERTÉ. (Hodierne (Ermesende) DE MONTLHÉRY died on 25 Mar.)
